March 2, 1804, letter from Beale before leaving Newport: "the tempest of today makes me feel thankful I was not rash enough to have put to sea on Thursday as in all possibility I might have been drove off the coast. June 20, 1804: I have been several times indisposed through the fatigues and over exertion one is obliged to make among these slow molded geniuses or else remain here." 1804: I have had a great deal to do to the vessel which has detained me considerably but have now nearly complete that part of my business . . . I feel extremely anxious for our dear offspring but whatever is the will of him who stears the great ship we must submit to with patience . . ." Captain Beale was lost at sea on the return voyage.

She, last summer, voluntarily pained a most beautiful picture of our dear Tom which she has now with her in New York and she writes word to her sister that it is thought there the most exquisite head that was ever seen. Several young ladies of the first fashion have fallen dreadfully in love with it and are living in hopes of one day seeing the original..."
